Salta, Argentina
Wednesday, January 14, 2015

The Dakar Rally is now back in Argentina en route to the finish at Buenos Aires, just three days away. On a tricky special stage that started at 3,600 metres above sea level, Stéphane Peterhansel was back setting top-10 stage times: the Frenchman was ninth overall, with a faultless display through the stage despite an unfavourable starting position. Cyril Despres set the 22nd-fastest time and made up places in the overall classification.

The technical nature of today’s stage once more provided a navigational challenge as well a test of driving, with crews having to pick their way through the road book despite limited visibility. With only a bit of sand at the start of the stage, the majority of the route was made up of narrow and rough gravel tracks that left little room for error. At these heights, the engines struggle to develop power in the thin air and there is a real risk of altitude sickness, making the Andean stages among the toughest of the entire rally.

After starting down the order, Stéphane Peterhansel had the worst of the road conditions. Nonetheless, he set a top-10 stage time, which crucially means that he will have a better start position tomorrow. He maintains 14th position overall tonight and will aim for a top-10 finish at the end of what has already been an action-packed event.

Notwithstanding his lack of experience, Cyril Despres followed up his ninth-fastest time yesterday with a 22nd-fastest time today, demonstrating once more that his Dakar experience in cars is growing with every kilometre, despite driving in conditions that were totally unfamiliar to him. With no problems for either PEUGEOT 2008 DKR today, the firm aim for him is to finish his first Dakar in a car, with many top competitors already having fallen by the wayside.

Tomorrow: SS11 (Salta-Termas Rio Hondo): Thu. 15 / 07:30am local time – 520km (SS 194km)

Quotes

Stéphane Peterhansel (#302): «It was beautiful and quite tricky stage: it looked nice on the surface but there were several traps underneath. It reminded me a little bit of a WRC stage as it was so narrow. My biggest problem today was our road position: I had to work really hard to make progress from where I started, while not taking unnecessary risks. The good news is that we’re in the top 10 so we should have better conditions tomorrow: or at least less worse! On the positive side we had no real problems with the car: perhaps the set-up was not ideal, but on the whole it was fine.»

Cyril Despres: (#322): «I found it a really twisty and fast stage: everything that I’m not familiar with, basically! I know I have a lot to learn in these types of conditions and I was very happy once more to have Gilles alongside me, who was able to give plenty of advice. I actually enjoyed the stage very much: you could come and live here just to drive stages like that, basically… The main thing for me was to have a safe run today: I could see big rocks everywhere on the road and I didn’t want to make the slightest mistake. So it was a lot of fun today, but with a certain apprehension as well.»

Peugeot Sport Director Bruno Famin: «As ever, the important thing is that we have two cars at the finish of another very demanding stage. The set-up was not perfect for these conditions, which made life more difficult for the drivers, but we had no technical problems at all, which shows the level of reliability that we have already managed to achieve. We have three stages to go now, and we cannot afford to relax our efforts for one second until we get to the finish, which is our principal goal.»

THE ITALIAN RALLY JUNIOR 🇮🇹 🌎 2022 CHAMPIONSHIP UNVEILED IN CAMPIDOGLIO  🇮🇹  🌎
The Italian Rally Junior 2022 Championship unveiled in Campidoglio
10 crews are ready to challenge each other in the series that launches the youngest protagonists and that will also take part in the 10th edition of the Rally di Roma Capitale. Motorsport Italia will be again on the side of ACI Sport, ACI Team Italia, Pirelli, Renault and Sparco.
The 10 crews that will take part in the Italian Rally Junior 2022 Championship have been announced today in Rome’s Piazza del Campidoglio. The series dedicated to the youngest rally protagonists devised by Automobile Club d’Italia and ACI Sport will have Motorsport Italia as technical partner and will collaborate with Pirelli, Renault and Sparco. The cars employed for this series are the brand new Renault Clio Rally5. Motorsport Italia has also introduced the 10th edition of the Rally di Roma Capitale.
This event took place in the presence of Assessor for Big Events of Roma Capitale Alessandro Onorato, Automobile Club d’Italia’s President Ing. Angelo Sticchi Damiani, CONI’s President Giovanni Malagò, the General Director of ACI’s Motorsport Marco Ferrari, the General Director of ACI Sport Marco Rogano, Automobile Club Roma’s President Giuseppina Fusco, the Vice President of Consiglio Regionale Lazio Daniele Leodori, Renault Italia’s Marketing Director Biagio Russo, Sparco’s Brand Manager Niccolò Bellazzini, Pirelli Rally Product Manager for Italy Walter Nicola and Motorsport Italia’s boss Max Rendina.
The Federation has completed an important selection of all the very young drivers born after 1994 to define the ten crews that have been presented today. These are Sara Carra-Giovanni Barbaro, Alessandro Casella-Rosario Siragusano, Guglielmo De Nuzzo-Fabio Grimaldi, Fabio Solitro-Rosario Navarra, Davide Nicelli-Tiziano Pieri, Davide Porta-Marco Demontis, Mattia Zanin-Fabio Pizzol, Davide Gianaroli-Alessio Spezzani, Matteo Ceriali-Luca Ferraris and Edoardo De Antoni-Martina Musiari.
The Italian Rally Junior Championship will include 6 rounds, four on the tarmac and two on the gravel. The opening round will be the Rallye Sanremo, whose technical stages have hosed the Rally World Championship for many years. The season will then continue with the two gravel rounds at the Rally dell’Adriatico, which will move to Urbino this year, and the historical Rally di San Marino. The second half of the season will include the Rally di Roma Capitale, which will allow crews to measure themselves with the colleagues of the FIA European Rally Championship, while the closing rounds will be the Rally 1000 Miglia and Rally Due Valli, the latter will have an increased scoring coefficient of 1.5.
A big novelty of season 2022 is the car: the Renault Clio Rally5 fitting Pirelli tyres. The Milan-based company developed for this series two compounds for tarmac, PZero RA and Cinturato RWB, and the Scorpion K for the gravel. These are tyres capable of providing performance and grip in all conditions.
The French challengers are pushed by a 1.3 litres engine capable of 180 hps and 300 Nm of torque and will certainly produce a great spectacle on the tarmac and on gravel. Special care has been devoted to safety, as the new cars will mount the new, latest generation Sparco “MASTER” racing seat developed by Sparco in compliance with the new homologation standards FIA 8855-2021 that have safety features very close to those of the Rally1 cars. The safety equipment of cars will also include the FIA 8853-2016 homologated Sparco Prime H-9 EVO seat belts with aluminium buckle to grant the highest lightness.
The collaboration with ACI Sport, Pirelli and Renault will allow the winner of season 2022 to take part in 6 rounds of the 2023 European Championship as the representative of the ACI Team Italia on an important international stage.
An important collaboration will also be with ACI Sport’s Federal School Michele Alboreto, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. Always in the front line for the training and tutoring of young drivers in all the sectors of motorsport, the School directed by Raffaele Giammaria will organize several extra testing sessions to allow the protagonists of the series to improve their skills of preparing races. This activity will be led by the 12 times Italian Champion Paolo Andreucci.
In this important event staged in the Piazza del Campidoglio and in the enchanting Terrazza Caffarelli, Max Rendina and his staff also introduced the Rally di Roma Capitale 2022.
The event organized by Motorsport Italia will celebrate its 10th Anniversary this year and will do so with the double validity for the Italian Rally Championship and FIA European Rally Championship. It will also be part of the Italian Rally Junior Championship. The competition has been introduced by an exciting video teaser and will introduce several novelties both in terms of sporting content and support initiatives. This anniversary not only celebrates the first decade of the sporting event but also wishes to raise the centrality of Rome and Italy in a very important international motorsport event.
